Question about AudioBahn A1451 10-Disc CD/DVD Changer

Power cable for A1451

I am installin the audiobahn a1451 in my vehicle. the a1451 comes with an 8pin DIN cable that connects to head units that have cd changer controls in the Sanyo format(Sanyo, Audiovox, Audiobahn, & Jensen). there is a cable that is available that plugs into the a1451 and has a filter/fuse box & 3 wires(12v+, 12v Acc, & ground). I am trying to find this cable. Audiobahn has not been any help because the unit is discontinued. if this cable cannot be found then will it be possible to cut one end off of the supplied DIN cable & wire it up to operate the changer, & if so what has to be done. in the supplied instructions for the a1451 there shows 4 ways to wire up the a1451. 1 shows the unit using an FM modulator. this is not an option for my install because my head unit(Valor DTS-660wt)has Aux inputs and multi-zone function. this is why i am using the a1451, for its multi-format disc reading capabilities. 2 shows the a1451 using the supplied 8pin DIN cable. again not an option because i don't have a Sanyo formated head unit. 3 shows the a1451 using a cable that has 8pin DIN on one end & 3 power wires (12v+, 12v Acc, & ground)on the other end. this is the cable i need. 4 shows the same as 3 but using an optical cable to send the audio to an amplifier with Dolby digital decoder. any help in either finding this elusive cable or a solution on powering up the a1451 would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys, I've just installed a CD changer in my car - having some difficulties getting it to work. After some Googling I came across this forum so I figured I'd see if any of you guys know where I'm...

there should be a small connector on the changer itself for the power ground and remote wire for power to the changer unit. the cord coming from the unit to the changer doesn't supply this power and this is why it wont eject and also your head unit wont recognize it until it gets powered up and able to communicate with the head unit and then it will show up as a selectable source when switching between sources of music. check the back of the changer for a small connector containing 3 or 4 pins and you should have a connector with the corresponding wires coming from it to plug into this spot after connecting the wires properly. if you bought it on ebay it is possible you didn't get this piece which is critical when connecting this changer.

Not sure what the problem is

Check the changer and see if cds are inserted correctly or if 2 cds are in one slot.

Connecting remote cable to other port from the car stereo

You can tap the amplifier's remote wire into the accessory power lead at the back of the head unit. On most head units this is a red wire. Doing this will make your amplifier turn on and off with the key switch, rather than the deck power.

Sorry my friend, JVC does not see that model number. Is that the changer number or the radio's model number? I need the radio numbers

No sound

It's very likely that you have a factory amplifier in the vehicle that needs to be either turned on or (preferably) bypassed to get sound to the speakers. If your vehicle is a Mustang, it's almost certain that you have a factory amp. If the factory plug includes a long, 8-pin gray plug and a small, square 8-pin plug connected to a round cable, then the amp turn-on wire is at the opposite end of the gray plug from the constant power wire. This needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Sony head unit for the factory amp to turn on. Otherwise, if you dig into the radio cavity a little bit, you'll find a black 8-pin connector that looks very similar to the gray connector at the back of the radio. The black connector pins are connected directly to the speakers, bypassing the factory amp.
